8 Tips to plan an epic convention

  • Select a theme. Choose something memorable that unifies your key messages.
  • Request speakers early. The ones with “wow” factor book up fast.
  • Pick an excellent printer. Order materials well in advance, and always get a few more than you think you’ll need.
  • Hire a team to handle tech. Having someone on hand to troubleshoot problem equipment is invaluable
  • Choose the right venue. In the long run, comfort matters more than effect.
  • Manage event details in one place. Stay organized and keep volunteers up-to-date by storing all information in an easily accessible online drive.
  • Get people talking. Ask your network to promote your event.
  • Gather post-event feedback. Survey attendees to refine future efforts.
